CDC EXTENDS EVICTION BAN

September 03, 2020

 

THE CDC HAS JUST ANNOUNCED THE ISSUANCE OF A NEW FEDERAL ORDER HALTING RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2020. 

The purpose of this moratorium is explicitly to further prevent the spread of Covid 19.

Renters will be eligible for the moratorium’s protection if they received a stimulus check, and can prove that they cannot afford to pay their rent in full, if evicted would become homeless or forced to move into congregate housing, and made an effort to obtain government assistance.

Nothing in this Order relieves Tenants of their obligations to pay rent, and nothing in the Order precludes landlords from charging fees, penalties or interest.
